U.S. Alumni Fair 2018

On Wednesday, March 21, the Romanian-U.S. Fulbright Commission, with the support of EducationUSA and the U.S. Embassy in Bucharest, organized the third edition of our very own U.S. Alumni Fair, hosted by the “Ion Mincu” University of Architecture and Urbanism. The event also marked the 25th anniversary of the Romanian-U.S. Fulbright Commission.

Following a brief introduction by Prof. Rodica Mihăilă, the Executive Director of the Fulbright Commission, the visitors were welcomed by Abigail Rupp, Deputy Chief of Mission, U. S. Embassy in Bucharest, and Prof. Marian Moiceanu, Rector of the “Ion Mincu” University of Architecture. 24 alumni of various American universities – members of the U.S. Embassy staff and U.S. Fulbright grantees – came together as representatives of their alma maters and spoke to the numerous visitors, from Bucharest and elsewhere, who braved the unfriendly weather conditions to join us on an exploration of the American college experience. During the 3-hour event, the high school and college students visiting the fair, together with their teachers and parents, had the opportunity to interact with the American alumni and to get more in-depth information on the Fulbright programs for Romanian citizens, as well as on the free services and resources offered by the Fulbright Educational Advising Center-EducationUSA.

Romanian-U.S. Fulbright Commission & FEAC-EducationUSA at RIUF 2018 Spring Edition in Bucharest

This weekend, the Romanian-U.S. Fulbright Commission and the Fulbright Educational Advising Center-EducationUSA took part in the Bucharest 2018 spring edition of the Romanian International University Fair (RIUF), a landmark on the map of educational fairs in Eastern Europe. The Romanian-U.S. Fulbright Commission and its EducationUSA-affiliated advising center were once again present at this year’s spring edition of RIUF in Bucharest, imparting information on undergraduate or graduate study opportunities in the U.S.
The FEAC-EducationUSA adviser also delivered a presentation during the fair, providing information on the Fulbright program and the path to studying in the U.S., at an undergraduate or graduate level.
The two-day event proved successful, with over 200 people stopping by our booth to inquire about study opportunities in the U.S., financial aid and the application process. All prospective applicants were also happy to learn more about the wide range of free resources and services that FEAC-EducationUSA provides, in order to assist them in the application process, as well as about our upcoming events.

Chealin’s Visit to Iasi

Following our initiative to have U.S. Fulbright grantees meet Romanian students and academic staff outside their Romanian university, Chealin Won, Fulbright ETA Student at the University of Craiova has recently been in dialogue with first, second, and third years students from "Alexandria Ioan Cuza" University in Iași. Chealin had the opportunity to share her personal narrative of being a "Hyphenated American." With a focus on the diversity of the United States, she shared statistics regarding the most recent racial census and led discussions about national-identity with a framework of the U.S. as an immigrant country. Chealin and the Romanian students then engaged in an open dialogue regarding Romanian identity in regards to the Roma population, what it means to be Romanian, what it means to be Roma, and what it means to live as citizens in a global world with documentation—recognizing the privileges that come from a piece of plastic of a small booklet.
